Anthropologie-inspired Capelet

Using the yarn DragonTush (Lang Yarns Tosca color 0063) sent me, I made this on sunday.

I decided I didn’t want the tie to be affixed to the body so that I can pretty much put it where ever I want. It’s just a simple 2 stitch i-cord.

First pic shows the color best.

It feels a little bulky on, but now that I look at it I guess it doesn’t really look that way.
I wore it off and on at work yesterday. It’s warm. :rofl: :happydance:

ETA: Cuz someone asked and I thought it was good info to add:
I used 1 and 3/4 balls of the yarn. I don’t know how much yardage that works out to though.

The link is here.

:cheering: Great job - I love those colors! :inlove:

That is beautiful! I so need to make one of those! I have been eyeing some wool/soy at Michaels. I think I need to make a shopping run at lunch time.


Gorgeous!!! It looks great on you, too :cheering:

Wow, that striping worked out perfectly! Great idea for the tie too!

That is soooo pretty! I LOVE those colors and it looks great on you!

I haven’t really liked many of the capelets… until yours!

You realize that now I have to go buy some of that yarn for myself :rofl:

You did a fantastic job on that capelet Frisky! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the compliments! I love how the striping worked out.

I do what I can. :wink: :rofl: :rofl:


Lovely fk!!! :heart: (and congrats on the pending anniversary ;-))

So did you start and finish that in just one day??

Basically, yeah. I cast on the night before, did a few rows and then did all the rest the next day.

(and thanks!)

WOW!!! It is so beautiful!!! I love the colors!!1

I wanted to knit one for myself but i am not sure how to increase sts to fit me… as I wear size L :waah:

Can anyone teach me? I saw that the post on the pattern on this forum and got very excited but didn’t start anything. Help!


Jakoh, you just keep increasing until it fits you. That’s the beauty of raglan shaped garment, they’re very basic and can fit anyone easily.


I wouldn’t think it would be too difficult since you increase to the size of your upper arm.

I’d just measure around your neck to determine how many stitches to cast on. Then, just keep doing the raglan increases until it measures the circumference of your upper arm.

Or, use bulkier yarn and bigger needles for no-conversion-needed.

Hope that helps! :thumbsup:

ETA: You could also check out the craftster thread. I didn’t read through all of the pages, but there might be some more tips in there.

That looks so awesome on you! That yarn is so perfect!

So pretty! I love the yarn you used - the colors are gorgeous!

Great job!!! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: I love it! And I like the i cord tie idea!! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

Ok, so I was reading this post and also the craftster thread hoping to find some info on resizing and also using a worsted weight yarn. This is what I found out on craftster:

Measure the circumference of your neck ( or where you want the neckline to sit).

Swatch to get stitches per inch.

neck measurement x stitches per inch = number of stitches to cast on. This number needs to be divisible by 4.

I am good so far, but need to know how to divide for the raglan then. This will be my first attempt at raglan so be gentle. Can anyone else fill in here?


Hmm, I’m not sure on that one. I know the top of mine was about 4 inches. When I finished, from one “inside” hole to the other was 10 inches.

Or, measure your arm where you want the increases to fall. Then use that number to determine how many stitches will be needed between the yo’s.

But…I really have no idea what I’m talking about and have a tendancy to make things much more difficult than they need to be, so hopefully someone more experienced can give a hand. :shrug:
